I was pleased yesterday to join Drew Mariani of Relevant Radio, part of America's largest Catholic radio network, for a discussion on my book The Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse. We covered the basic points of how to safeguard elderly family members from exploitation, a challenge that will only grow in the years ahead as more and more Baby Boomers become senior citizens. That paves the way for the greatest generational transfer of wealth - an estimated $30 trillion - we've ever seen.
Drew was a great host and conversationalist, and it was especially gratifying to be a guest on Relevant Radio since I, too, am a Catholic and have long been involved in Church causes for positive community action. We were able to distribute dozens of free copies of my books to listeners who emailed us, another step in raising awareness of elder financial abuse and ways to fight it. Thanks again to Drew and Relevant Radio for all their good work.
